As well as the metal frame for your pocket door, we supply you with a jamb kit, sometimes called a finishing joinery kit. This is what makes the end product into a beautiful, properly finished sliding door. The jambs are made from quality finger-jointed pine with a real wood cherry walnut veneer or in a quality fir, unfinished and ready to stain, paint or varnish.
Designed by Eclisse to give a perfect finish to the system, we’ve left nothing to chance. Take the door post – it would be easier and cheaper to have just a flat piece of wood, but we think that compromises the closure; light peeping through the gaps where the two surfaces are not perfectly aligned, the slam of a wooden door against a flat wooden post, bang! Every time you close it. We designed a door post with a full recess for the leading edge of the door to sit in when closed, no gaps for light to come through, and channels in the recess with rubber bumpers so that the door closes against soft rubber and not hard wood.
The jambs that line the pocket entrance verticals and cover the top of the door and sliding gear are made of the same material, finished in a real wood veneer or fir, no skimping, quality all the way through. The jambs are routed so that the brushes we supply neatly close the gap between the door and the pocket frame.
